Subject DO NOT REPLY [Bug 45718] Enhance bzip2 for Hadoop
Date Mon, 06 Oct 2008 09:09:34 GMT

--- Comment #1 from Stefan Bodewig <>  2008-10-06 02:09:34 PST ---
If I had to point at the piece of code inside Ant's source tree that is the
least understood one (by the current set of active committers) I'd immediately
choose the bzip2 package.

I completely agree with the reasons why the code could and should be changed
(though I might argue that using commons-compress instead of Ant's libraries
might be better if all you want is compression), but don't think anybody around
Ant currently knows the BZIP2 algorithm well enough to actually make the

Patches with tests are certainly welcome ;-)
